NEW YORK TRIBUNE, March 19, 1877

* Frederick Douglass, United States Marshal

The front page has: "Washington--Mr. Douglass Confirmed" the report beginning: "The debate in the Executive session yesterday on the confirmation of Frederick Douglass to be United States Marshal of the District of Columbia was one of the most memorable that has ever occurred in that body..." with the text taking a full column.
Eight pages, some minor chipping to the upper right corner, good condition.
